Unique Baby Names Available for Sale—If You Have $35,000

The Short of It

Before you became a parent, did you daydream of giving your babies the "perfect" baby names; ones that were as special and unique as you believed your gorgeous perfect beings to be? Well, for $35,000, Swiss company, erfolgswelle, will create a 100 percent unique name that has never been used anywhere in the world for your child.

The Lowdown

The entire process to find a truly unique baby name takes around 100 hours and requires 12 translators that speak the most common languages around the world. The translators and a creative team put together a list of 15 to 25 one-of-a-kind baby names by combining different words to make original combinations. After all the names have been checked and double checked to make sure that they've never been used before, they are presented to the customer.

After the family picks their favorite name, a team of professional historians checks once again that the name is not already in existence. If the name is found to be in use, it's pulled.

"Some of the copyrights on our team are parents as well," Marc Hauser, owner and CEO of erfolgswelle, told ABC News. "So it's not just about the name. It's very important to us to give a name that fits within the family's culture and background."

The Upshot

Hauser said erfolgswelle has already received a few name requests since the company's launch earlier this month. If you only care that your baby's name is unique in your nation and not the world, erfolswelle charges $20,000 U.S. dollars for that service.
